This is the text (if you need help).

A professor says having a lot of money makes you bad. He spent ten years studying the personalities of rich people. Their behaviour was very different to poor people's behaviour. The professor said rich people break rules and laws, and do not care about others. He also said they cheat more at games. He said wealth makes you think only about yourself, your goals and things you want. These are the most important things in life for rich people.

The professor said poorer people are more generous than rich people. They give one-and-a-half times more of their money to help others. He said the richer you are, the less generous you are. Rich people can change and become nicer and more generous. They can help others more if they know that giving and helping is good. The professor said when rich people know how good giving is, they will give as much to others as poor people.
